I spent quite some time yesterday trying to arrange an audition of the Audiolab with the gear I've already got, but the dealers either didn't have the right stuff, or indeed the audiolab. I'll keep trying, even though I may end up taking my speakers/amp, sofa, dog, etc along to get a meaningful audition. I fancy a new CDP to go with my B&W685s and Rotel RA1520. Although I fancy the matching Rotel CDP for it's looks and functionality, I'm put off by the reviews. So I thought "why not just get the CDP that gets top marks and awards in the reviews?" Subject to audition (hah!), is there any reason why the Audiolab 8200 shouldn't sound great with my current amp and speakers? Your advice and comments, as ever, gratefully recieved!
